Highlights: Cruise in the Marmara far away from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. In the times of Eastern Roman Empire the islands were used as exile sites and as a monastery region during the Byzantine Christian period. Today only 4 of the total 9 Princes’ Islands are open to public settlement. The largest of these is Büyükada. It was Büyükada where the Byzantine empresses Irene, Zoe and Anna Dalassena were sent on exile. After his deportation from the former Soviet Union in 1929, Leon Trotsky stayed as well for four years on Büyükada. We will see mansions, palaces and the Aya Yorgi Monastery. After a romantic phaeton tour through streets surrounded by historic houses and pine trees, you get a delicious lunch in a fish restaurant. If you want to spend a calm day far away from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul, this tour is perfect for you! When the weather is hot you can go swimming. So therefore do not forget your sun cream, towel and swimwear.
After some chilling hours on Büyükada, the tour ends with your return Istanbul by ferry
